    As you hold them in your arms
    And say your last goodbyes
    Look close into the fading light
    that flickers in their eyes.

    They are not afraid
    because they know when a sparrow falls
    she falls into the hands of God
    all creatures great and small

    Remember when you found your pet
    abandoned, frightened, so alone
    shivering at your side you gave comfort
    and shared the warmth of your home

    As the years passed, they were with you
    through every joy and sorrow
    Always at your side until one day you knew
    there would be no more tomorrows

    You sigh and think
    never again will I give my heart
    it hurts too much to grieve
    when you have to part

    But there are so many animals
    that have no place to go
    who are longing for someone just like you
    to love and call their own

    They don't live as long as humans do
    this too is a part of God's plan
    for animals are God's angels
    to be there for you when he can't

    God's gift is that you can love many
    when your pets has time for only one
    you can give love and happiness to the strays…
    who without you would have none

    So lay your friends to rest, lift up your hearts
    dry your tears, for it is told
    death is but a passage into the hands of God,
    through the gates of gold

    Somewhere others need you
    in shelters, or wandering the streets
    they want nothing more from life
    than to lay down at your feet

    It is time to give another life
    the love only you can give
    we are the caretakers of God's creatures
    for not to love...is not to live
